Been playing with jigheads for past couple years. Got tired of my tails getting ripped off by the yellowmouths.I have gave friends and family members several of these to test out and after about 2000 jigheads made and several hooks later we found one to hold up to reds and big specks. Problem I find with most jigheads is they have too short of hooks. So when the speck bites the action part (.... Read More
Ok had to post this report, this is what fishing is really about....making a kid smile. Great day on the water with family and friends, great weekend at Leeville with 2 limits saturday most 14-17 and one man limit sunday got ran off early cause of storms. White plastics were the key for us.
Went sunday with a friend to show his buddy around they bay. Hit bird island,case-tete...and got chased by storms back into leeville. Did good overall specs were on in the morning but died off after the storm came in never hit past little lake though. Went back out and played in the bays and both boats filled the ice chests. All in all good trip. Lots of large whities out there. We had at one.... Read More
Wife was bugging to fish so took her and kids to leeville to play this morning. Kids didnt wanna fish so they kept themselves occupied on boat. Hit the islands and found throwbacks at philo. Hit some well heads and found some 16+ on bottom and under cork. Ended up with a nice mess of mostly 17 inch trout ...they got aggressive around 10-10:30 and started popping braid lines with 20lb leaders..... Read More
Made a trip to the island this morning to play fish the surf and let the kids relax at the beach. I couldnt fish all the area I wanted to at the park due to someone drowned there yesterday. My prayers go out to his family in a sad situation. I did get spooled by something as I was bouncing a norton sand eel on bottom. Snapped 30lb power pro. Had a good time and kids had a blast. Was packed on.... Read More
Just wanting to know what kind of jighead everyone using...and why? I have become turned off of the commercial ones I used to buy in stores due to short hooks which in part is why we loose tails and ends of our baits. I have been making my own using a eagle claw 630-2/0 hook and it works well ...dont loose many tails or end s of baits ripped off....they bite hook instead. Works well on big reds.... Read More
Made a trip to hopedale this morning despite 20-30 mph winds. Wife said she wants to be on water regardless. Started at lake Ameda first time in there and could tell water really low. Went toward one shoreline for a point and found less than a foot of water quickly (thank god for tunnel hull). Decided to scrap that idea and so went exploring ran entire bayou loutra and played on the east side a.... Read More
Wondering how many people still make their own jig heads and weights? I have been for years for friends and family...powder coat jigheads and all. Costs me about 8 bucks to make 100 jigheads. I do 3/8 and 1/4 oz...1/4 oz mainly for specks. Weights for reds and surf fishing.

Ok I need some help..my buddy has a place he hunts and he has trespasser issues. He knows who it is and has pics. So does he go to cops and have the guy arrested or cited for trespassing? Be nice and talk to the guy? Granted the person has stolen and it is on camera. So he is a theif too. Cant get too much into detail cause the theif can be reading this. What would you do?
Took my son on the youth hunt last weekend and he found him a doe. Now that shes out the way he is concentrating on bucks. Love it when it comes together for the kids. Looks like every hunt I do he will be there....no complaints.
Havent fished leeville in a while. Got there sunday morning at 9 with wife and kids. Didnt fish hard just went to a new area and played. Found clean water and wife put some specs in the boat. I got to try my new Okuma trio 40 rigged with 10 pound test. Caught a nice 27 inch red and that reel is nice ...tried it on a few specs too. Ended with 30 only 4 whities. Most specs were 13-14. They liked.... Read More
So after seeing the new maps WAHOOOOOOOO. I feel that I have this fishites syndrom that might keep me from goin to work for the next couple days. I wonder how many people will call in sick this following week. I might be one also that this new FISH FLUE has decided to invade my body. Say it again WAHOOO......but yes we need the timbalier chain to open.
Went down to Lafitte for first time. Put in at c&m. No problems there . Went down towards little lake and tried fishing..wow grass everywhere. No salinity at all. Started to cross little lake to go further south. Just islands of grass on east and west side. West side alot worse. Threw back some undersized reds . Ran to the pen to see what thats all about. Kinda cool clear water but no bites..... Read More
Recently areas like east of leeville have opened. Places to stay like Boudreauxs (probably mispelled it) are no longer booking for fisherman due to then have booked months in advance for other companies. Buddy told me about this and I called to verify and its true. So they have gauranteed money for all week not just booked up weekends like summer pattern ....buisness is buisness and they wil....
